I have been waiting for the perfect paper to scrapbook this photo! And I finally found it!!
This was several Christmases ago when I took the kids to visit Santa at Disneyland. I really don't remember what Santa said to me at that time but I do remember it was something quite naughty! LOL! Which would explain the look on his face and mine!! LOL!
I hope you enjoy this layout as much as I enjoyed making it!! Ho Ho Ho!!!


I used Kiwi Lane Design Templates: Scallop Border, Madison Avenue and Bracket 3
Also based this layout loosely on a layout in their idea book.
My title is from the Silhouette Store. I used black cardstock misted with Marshmallow Glimmer Mist.


Santa was cut with Silhouette from PPBN Designs. Isn't he the cutest? And of course his bag is completed with Rumple Ribbon in Simply Black from LoveBug Creations.


Also used some silk poinsettia flowers, a silver snowflake brad, and Candi (from the Scrapbook Queen's Royal Shoppe).

I am entering this layout in to a few challenges:
Paper Playtime #25 Winter Fun
Craft It Up Linky Party #21

  Rumple Ribbon Wednesday

Pin It
Hello fellow lovebugs!!

Connie here with a new project to share using Rumple Ribbon!!

 Lately I have become addicted to Kiwi Lane Design Templates. They are just the coolest ever for scrapbooking, especially when you need some help coming with a design. I have quite a few of them and I just could not figure out what to do with them or how to store them.
 
So after much trial and error and some serious thought I came up with this!!!
 
I took a wire clothes hanger and wrapped patterned duct tape around all its edges. I turned the top facing inward so it could hang off a chair or the back of my scrap cart. I added lots of Rumple Ribbon to separate the different sets of patterns.


 I also used Rumple Ribbon knotted on the inside of my large flower. And whala! I love it!
 
 
Now I just take whatever pattern I want off and when I am done I hang it back up.
They never get lost or bent!
And they travel!! 

  
I can't thank you enough for checking out my project. It means the world to me and I hope you truly enjoyed it. May it inspire you to create something wonderful!

  Cookies for Santa

Pin It
I am loving my Silhouette and having so much fun squeezing in a project in between study sessions for the end of this semester. I have seen so many of the talented ladies in one of my Facebook groups creating all kind of cute Christmas things with vinyl and one thing that really caught my eye was the Santa Plates.
I purchased a really cute file from the Silhouette store that was made just for Santa and his night time snack of cookies and milk. I just love this! I think I need to make a few more for gifts!!
 
 The glittery vinyl really makes it sparkle!
 
I will be entering this over at the Silhouette Challenges blog. Not sure if counts for 3D but why not! I am just so excited I can actually play along with them now.
